The primary focus of my research is conceptions of
subjectivity and intersubjectivity and related questions of ethics, responsibility and connectivity. In exploring these issues, I draw mainly on the work of Jacques Lacan and related theorists such as Alain Badiou, Bracha Ettinger and Slavoj Žižek.
